    lynx, im very slow on the keyboard, it would take a while for me to explain why i don,t cap with that approach. in the end it all comes down to me not having the ability to roll a good cap. in general though im sure its possible. hope this clears things up. flange.

    walker, no problem, belfast has changed beyond recognition, no more troops. sonora and dave good to see a little light hearted banter, sort of reminds me of SFT. lynx its just how i was taught, i havn,t come across a stick that would be long enough to weld a bead round an 8" pipe without stopping? i mentioned earlier vodex, these are a great rod for root, fill and cap, again i burn them dc/en heres a few root shots. f/j

    "Really"

    Last camera I had was a Pentax K-1000 manual SLR. Took great pics with the 80-200 mm lens. Kodak no longer makes Kodachrome 64, so it would have been useless anyway. I use the tri-pod for the cheap laser level I bought at Sears.

    Guess I need to get out of the "stone age" and buy a digital.

    Sorry.........

    the first pictures look great nice even steps and spacing how ever it looks alot like flux core but another question why the up hand why not roll the weld so you dont have to stop

    "White Lightning"

    flangejockey: Yep, the "white flux" (rutile-potassium) is from 6013's. Very nice looking welds. You weld that on DC or AC? I've read that 6013's are used for fill and caps in that area of the world, like we use 7018's over here.

    You got my curiosity going, so I went out in the shop and ran a few "beads" around some 6" sch. 40 yesterday. Very smooth.

    Keep up the great work and photos.

    Dave
